I am a list maker by nature but very few members of my list inventory are as long as the Travel Bucket list.
In fact, with every travel blog I visit that list becomes a little more overwhelming to look at. The action plan? Attacking different levels of the bucket list year by year.
The 2015 Travel Bucket List
1. The West Coast of America
Though half of my childhood was spent in the U.S., I have barely popped the lid off the West Coast. New York to Florida? I’m an old pro. Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and co? I couldn’t even recommend you guys a ‘best burger in …’.
2. The Northern Lights
I’ve gotten into a terrible habit with this one. Every year, I see someone have a magical time experiencing the Northern Lights a good two to three months after their visibility works in tourist’s favours. I’m desperate to see the Arctic Circle, reindeer camps, husky rides and all that relates.
3. A Private Island
This one is a bit of a stretch, but hear me out: after some solid research at the beginning of the year, I found a private island that would have cost ten friends and I only £10 a day to live on.
I missed the deadline for a New Years’ excursion. The plan is to find another.
What is your 2015 travel bucket list?
On Wednesday, I got a sneak peak at one of the best jewellery collections I have seen in a long time. Presenting…Jian of London!
For 2011, Jian of London were actually awarded the Editor’s Choice award at the most prestigious of trade shows, International Jewellery London. The award itself is designed to recognise and showcase jewellery designers who exhibit jewellery that is extremely creative and cutting edge. With the innovation and unique processes that go into the making of Jian’s pieces, International Jewellery London couldn’t have picked a better brand.
Currently, Jian boasts five collections; Combinations, Expressions, The Northern Lights, Chichi, and the latest collection, Stardust. The latter is “oh my shiny goodness”-worthy, with amazing and customizable pieces like the Ruby Sapphire Dome Ring – a snowglobe-like ring with floating jewels of your choice.
And though the pricetag on the dome ring will not suit everyone’s budget, Jian has everything from glittering pendants to double-sided earrings to stacking rings (seen above) that start as low as £15! Even better? The brand-wide rhodium plating means they will last for years to come.
